was prohibited in america, al capone and the gangsters existed. and all that money went into the underworld. people were being arrested for drinking alcohol. they were being put in prison. the united states realized that was not a sensible option, and the moment they legalized it, the taxes went into health and education. people stopped getting arrested and put in prison. the underworld went away. you know, i think the global drug commission believes that if you take the same approach to say something like marijuana, it's likely to work. what they're saying is that let certain states experiment with it. let's see what happens. we don't believe that, you know, the health issues of the public will be any worse than they currently are, because people could readily get marijuana any way, almost anywhere. >> let's talk about your expertise in space. what is your next big adventure? are you still intent on going to space and leading space tourism? when does that happen? >> i said i wanted to get high, didn't i? >> you want to get high, real high. >> i want to get real high. we're very, very close

. i want to turn to paul barrett, who we had on yesterday's, author of "bloch: the rise of america's gun." i asked about senator feinstein's announcement that she will reintroduce the ban on assault weapons on the first of the senate. >> i will read the legislation very closely when it is out. i have to say i'm skeptical. the 1994 so-called assault weapons ban was one of the most porous, ineffective pieces of legislation that i personally have the opportunity to study. it was shot through with loopholes. it had no applicability to weapons that were made and sold on the day before enactment. and the fact it was coming for a period of years gave gun manufacturers an opportunity to run their factories overtime and to build up huge stockpiles of the weapons. so we will see. but if congress is not proposing to ban weapons that are already out there, then that leaves millions and millions of weapons already out there. >> that was paul barrett, author of "glock: the rise of america's gun." rebecca peters, if you could compare to the legislation that was passed in australia after the massa
